I knew nothing of God for most of my childhood and adolescent years until a faithful high school friend shared the gospel with me as we sat at my kitchen table. I didn't come to faith at that moment, but our conversation remained in my mind for months.
After attending church awhile, I started seeing the purpose and hope of living a life under the banner of the gospel. I don’t remember the specific day that I came to faith but I was curious at the age of 15. By the time I was 16, as Paul says in1 Corinthians 2:2, I had an insatiable desire to know nothing but Christ.
Throughout college, God continued to grow inside of me that thirst for more. After I received my bachelor’s degree, I started a career as a law enforcement officer. Though a rewarding job, it was a life-altering and weighty experience that I found difficult to cope with.
In 2010, I married my wonderful wife, Katie. After seeing how much damage was being done to our relationship, I left law enforcement. Katie and I started attending The Village in 2013, and God has been faithful to use this place to heal the wounds in our hearts. We are continually grateful to the Lord for the profound truths and deep community that flows from this place.
Hope for The Village Church
My hope for The Village is that we would continue to place our hope in Christ and look to Him to find our every worth.
